At Destin Plastic Surgery, Dr. William Burden is one of the first plastic surgeons to offer Renuvion, a revolutionary advance in facelift technology that improves the appearance of loose skin on the jawline and upper neck. The minimally invasive treatment is an option for someone who isn’t ready for a facelift or wants to enhance their facelift results.
Renuvion is the only skin-tightening device cleared by the FDA to treat loose skin on the neck and under the chin. Dr. Burden recognized the game-changing nature of this treatment early on and has extensive experience using it as a standalone procedure or combining it with facelifts and neck contouring procedures. Within a few years, Renuvion has established itself as the go-to treatment for skin tightening—both on the face and areas of the body—with a recent study confirming its effectiveness.
It’s also been used on the television show “Botched” by one facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Paul Nassif.
How Does Renuvion Work?
Renuvion delivers a precise stream of plasma energy—created by energizing helium gas with radiofrequency (RF) waves—underneath the skin’s surface using a long, thin tube called a cannula. When Dr. Burden inserts the cannula under the skin, it delivers a combination of RF energy and helium to the deep layers of tissue.
First, the device creates a minimal pocket of space beneath the skin’s surface. This space is then filled with helium gas while a carefully calibrated stream of plasma energy is delivered directly to the collagen and connective tissue. This leads to the immediate shrinkage of these deeper tissues for an aesthetically pleasing tightening effect. Along with the contraction of deeper tissues, the overlying skin also tightens, conforming to the newly firmed areas.
Renuvion: The Next Big Thing Is Now
What are the benefits of Renuvion?
Minimally invasive: The outpatient procedure doesn’t require a general anesthetic.
Minimal or no scarring: Dr. Burden makes tiny incisions that heal quickly.
Results After 1 Treatment: Unlike some skin-tightening treatments, which require multiple treatment sessions over several weeks, Renuvion is a single treatment.
Little downtime: Many patients feel well enough to return to normal activities within a week.
Tighter, firmer skin: Renuvion tightens mild to moderately loose skin under the chin and along the jawline, including jowls
Long-lasting results: Your skin will continue to tighten for up to 9 months after the procedure, and the results can last for years.
